Anatomical drawing of right and left amygdalae, located anterior to the hippocampus. b: An illustration of a clown¹s face exemplifies the problems in processing facial emotional content. Clown faces are usually characterized by exaggerated and potentially confusing or misleading facial features; hence the use of ‘palsy-walsy’ as the title for the illustration. Also depicted, flanking the clown¹s cap, are the amygdalae (in yellow).
